Ryan Anderson is going to be making quite a big decision by 5pm today. All signs point to Ryan signing an agent and entering the NBA draft, thus foregoing the rest of his college career at California.
I routinely get the feeling that a lot of the non west coasters don’t know much about Ryan. They recognize his name, but don’t really know his game.
He’s been called a tweener and unathletic, but many players have escaped that tag and gone on to be great, so there’s no point in putting any effort into those labels.
He averaged 21 ppg his sophomore year at Cal, good for best scoring average in the Pac 10, for what it’s worth.
Rod Benson, the Dakota Wizards star, has his own movement, the Boom Tho movement, and also blogs for Yahoo Sports as well.
The guy entertains his Boom Tho supporters (I’m one) by often posting amusing stories and videos about D-League life in North Dakota.
Benson has put up some quality numbers in the D-League in recent years but has yet to be signed by a NBA team. He compares himself to Kevin Garnett, except he says “I ain’t worth a dollar.”
This clip chronicles some of Ryan Anderson’s draft prep so far, Rod Benson style. Check it out.
